The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi currently awards fifty-one Fellowships of $5,000 each and six at $15,000 each to members entering the first year of graduate or professional study. Each active Phi Kappa Phi chapter may select one candidate from among its local applicants to compete for the Society-wide awards.
Honors College student Ariana C. Peruzzi is one of the recipients.
Ariana has a desire to provide important voices and perspectives to marginalized populations. A graduate from the University of Houston with bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and liberal studies, Ariana’s primary interest of study is the field of moral philosophy—particularly ethics and metaethics. Through her undergraduate studies, she also developed a passion for teaching and mentoring. She used her academic pursuits, volunteer work and personal experiences as a Latina and Venezuelan-American to better understand the ethical dilemmas that can arise to persons in marginalized communities. She hopes to start conversations that offer guidance to members of these populations while prompting important moral and ethical change. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Michigan.
Phi Kappa Phi is proud to present the 2017 Phi Kappa Phi Fellowships here.
